Maintaining Good Academic Standing

To remain in good academic standing, undergraduate students must maintain an overall Cumulated Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.0 or better for all course work attempted at FU. A student whose CGPA falls below 2.0  will  be  placed  on  academic  probation  for the  following semester  (summer terms are counted in the calculation of the probation periods for students who choose to register for 6 credit hours in each summer term). If at the end of that semester the student receives a SGPA of 2.0 or above, but is still below a CGPA of  2.0, he/she will remain on academic probation for one more semester. Students will be notified of their status by receiving probation notices and a copy will be sent to the Academic Advisor, Chair  of the Department, Student guardian and the Sponsor, if any. Such students are allowed to register for no more than 15 credit hours for the first probationary semester and 12 credit hours for the second probationary semester. Students who do not meet the above criteria will be liable to the following actions:

Action 1: Students will be restricted to repeating courses in which they achieved grades below C, and/or taking one new course per semester only, until they achieve a CGPA of 2.0 or above.

Action  2:  Students  who  have  completed  90+  credits  of  the  total  credit  hours required for graduation will be granted the opportunity to continue their studies in the same academic program, but will be allowed to register for no  more  than  12  credit  hours  of repeated  courses (those  with  grades below C) per semester until they achieve a CGPA of 2.0 or higher.
